Fra Salimbene, in his medioeval chronicles, called them "Li monti de le vigne".
Gentle hills, layed on the right bank of the Taro river, raising up to three hundred meters high, to grant grapes exposed on different sides the privilege of a homogeneous and full ripening.
"Monte delle Vigne" was born here, and it has been natural; seven hectares planted with passion, in the early 70's. It has been our passion, together with love for this land making our dreams come true, here.
Today the hectares are nearly thirty and will grow up to fifty during the next three years.
Today the hectares are fourty and will grow up to sixty during the next three years.
On the west side barbera and bonarda, red autochthonous known for their expressivity, on the east side malvasia, white grape expriming a peculiar and fine aromaticity.
In the centre of the vineyard the new vinery, projected to get the best qualitative result from what Nature is offering us.
Territory, passion, innovation, the starting point of an enthousiastic way: the rewrite of a page belonging to the wine-growing history of the Parmesan territory.
The delightful scenery of the Parma hills, the mildness of the climate and the friendliness of the people make Monte delle Vigne the ideal place for guided tours and tastings.
